Pelosi: GOP is 'going to leave a mess'
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- House Democratic Leaders aren't happy their GOP colleagues have left them with a slew of unfinished business as the 109th congressional session is set to close.

"The war in Iraq and the Republicans in Congress are in disarray," House Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi, D-California, told reporters Thursday. "They are going to leave a mess as they go out."

Pelosi's comments came during an end-of-session press conference with incoming House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Maryland, and Rep. Dave Obey, D-Wisconsin.

Hoyer also sharply criticized his GOP colleagues for ending the congressional session with little legislative action.

"We are ending appropriately; doing nothing -- at least doing nothing right," Hoyer said.
